These are links to the two most frequently run routes on a Sunday Morning. Runs may be in either direction and there are many variations. Runs are one hour or ninety minutes. Wednesday summer runs are usually variations of the same route but maximum one hour with a 40 minute option.
Routes for Wednesday runs in the dark are very varied. Depending on numbers Runs usually split into 4 groups 1st (Fast – can run 10K in less than 45 mins), 2nd (can run 10K in less than 50 mins, 3rd (can run 10K in less than 55 mins), 4th The Rest. All runs are 1 hour but with the option to turn back after 20 minutes making a 40 minute run. All follow roughly the same route on the night but with minor variations to allow for the different pace.
